Technical repitition 1

TECHNICAL REPITITON

Passing and receiving / angles of support

Player 1 starts with a ball and passes to player 2 who shows at an angle - 2 plays to 3 who shows at an angle and receives on the back foot, then dribbles into the open grid in the next channel - repeat combination - 3 to 4, 4 to 5, etc. - Players follow each pass

COACHING POINTS

Passing technique (ankle locked, plant foot toward target, strike through center of the ball)

Movement before each pass (angles of support) - players in each channel should never be in a straight line

Receive the ball late (open body position, facing the direction you want to play)

Prepare early to receive (on the balls of your feet, receiving foot just off the ground)

Positive first touch (in the direction of play)
